Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker doesn't arrive in theaters until a few weeks, but fans were close to getting a major spoiler from the film as the script had ended up on eBay. Yes, if you're unaware of this, let us give you some background. Turns out, the latest Star Wars script was up for sale on eBay a few weeks ago as one of the cast members seemed to have lost it. Luckily, it was taken down from the website after an alert Disney employee spotted it.

Now, actor John Boyega has come forward and admitted that it was his script that he misplaced and eventually made its way online. Appearing on Good Morning America, revealed the news and explained how it all happened in the first place. John clarified, "Guys, it was me. But wait, wait, wait, let me tell you how this all went down. What had happened was, I was moving apartments and I left the script under my bed. I thought, ‘I’m going to leave it under my bed. When I wake up in the morning, I’ll take it then move.' "

However, looks like John's friends proved to be a great deal of distraction. "But then my boys came over and we started partying a little bit and the script just stayed there. Then a few weeks after, this cleaner comes in, finds this script and then puts it on eBay for like 65 pounds.” He added, "So the person didn’t know the true value. And I actually thought, ‘This is a great opportunity for the fans to read the movie before they see it! Maybe I’m on to something!'"
